Yeah, the method for catching Feebas is proof of at least mild sadistic tendencies from the programmers.
I started fishing every square at the upper river on Route 119, until I got to the one access point for SURFing. I immediately caught one, and realized if I'd just stayed on the bank and fished from there, I could've saved at least 3 hours.
Back on-topic, I wouldn't care too much about what rod you use to catch it, since some of Feebas / Milotic's most useful moves are Egg moves, so naturally that level starts at 5.
Yes, I lurk. It's what I do. Which is why I can never go back to Carl's Jr.
you can cathc feebas but first you have to battle the guy across the water and you ll seee how he looks like and have a better chance of catching it with any rod You don't need to see a Pokemon beforehand to encounter it. Sure you would recognise it more easily but it won't increase the chances of finding the Pokemon.
